5,700 people questioned in Bahrain unrest: Report

The Bahrain Commission of Inquiry was set up in July with the consent of the country`s Sunni rulers.



Manama: Local media in Bahrain say the
international panel investigating months of anti-government protests and crackdowns in the Gulf kingdom has interviewed
more than 5,000 witnesses and alleged victims over the past
three months.

A report in Bahrain`s state-owned Gulf Daily News
newspaper says investigators have spoken with 5,700 people
about the unrest that began in February when the kingdom`s
Shiite majority rose up to demand greater rights.

The Bahrain Commission of Inquiry was set up in July with
the consent of the country`s Sunni rulers.

Sunday`s report in the English-language newspaper says
detainees, police personnel, doctors and journalists are among
those interviewed by the five-member panel.

Its findings will be published in a report due by October
31.
